Some Obama supporter has put his Hampton’s waterfront home on the market for $30 million, possibly hoping to escape the next tax hike his friend has planned. Business Insider implies that it’s somehow heartless (or stupid – hard to tell exactly what the author’s getting at) to list a place so soon after Hurricane Sandy but I disagree. If this place survived Sandy unscathed, then what better selling point can there be? Buyer is piloted out to the town and sees massive destruction everywhere, then sets down on this perfect, untouched lawn? His check book will be out before he sets his first tasseled loafer on the sand.
Of course, if there is no longer a beach here, if Sandy wiped out that lawn, then Business Insider is right: the guy’s a moron.
